We’re sharing all the details you need to know when tickets go on sale November 14, 2017 at 10am!

On Saturday, December 9, 2017 from 9:00-10:30am AND 11:00am-12:30pm families will be able to enjoy a light breakfast from Whole Foods Market, holiday crafts and activities from a wide range of local brands and businesses, and a special storytime with Santa Claus as we send him back to the North Pole to get ready for Christmas.

Excited?! We are too! Here’s all the details: 

WHO’S INVITED :: Families of the Greater Dallas Metroplex

WHEN :: This event will happen TWICE! Yes, we are offering it at two separate times to accommodate your busy schedule and as many Dallas families as possible. Join us on Saturday, December 9th during our 9:00-10:30am or 11:00am-12:30pm event. Both events will be identical. This will simply allow us to accommodate as many families as possible.

WHERE :: Texas Discovery Gardens in Fair Park. Besides enjoying the yummy breakfast and having fun, your kiddos are invited to stay and enjoy the gardens and Butterfly House (included in event admission). You’ll want to make sure to stay around for the Noon Butterfly Release! 

COST TO ATTEND ::  

General Admission Tickets – $20 / person (over the age of 1)

There are 120 general admission tickets available per session (9am & 11:30am times). Everyone ONE (1) year of age and older needs a ticket to attend. There are no exceptions to this policy; it is for your own safety and high-quality experience. Children younger than one do not need a paid ticket; however, we do ask that you still register them for our own planning purposes. 

Your General Admission Ticket includes: full event access, food, drink, sweets, Storytime with Santa {presented by myKIDSdds}, Santa Claus photo opportunities,  Mrs. Claus photo opportunities {presented by Lindsay Taylor of Keller Williams – Dallas}, a balloon artist {presented by Allison Henderson, M.D. }, entrance into Texas Discovery Gardens & Butterfly House, and other fun holiday activities such as ornament decorating, cookie decorating, letter writing to Santa and more! We do not charge for anything once you’re inside the event (think of it as an all-inclusive family outing).

Personal Santa Photo Sessions (An Add-On to your General Admission Tickets) – $25 / family

We have 25 Professional Santa Photo Packages available per session {presented by myKIDSdds}. This is an ADD-ON to your ticket for $25 and includes: a sitting with Santa and a professional photo session in which RC Photography will provide up to 3 digital images (unmarked) – emailed after the event – for families to use for their own prints. Children can sit with Santa & share their wish lists. Please only purchase 1 ADD-ON Santa Package per family and time limitations will only allow up to 5 children per photo session.

Upon arrival at the event, each family will receive a card with their Personal Santa Photo Session time slot. Families are welcome to enjoy the other event activities until their scheduled time. Please Note: If a family is late to their prearranged photo time, we will not be able to reschedule your time slot as Santa MUST leave at his designated time. 

FOOD, ACTIVITIES & CRAFTS :: Whole Foods will be providing a delicious spread of foods for a light breakfast + a Hot Chocolate Bar for our guests. Once your tummy’s full, head over to our sponsors’ craft tables for fun holiday activities!

‘Tis the Season for Giving! :: Bring Donations & Win!

CPD_logo_roundLike all of our events you know that we always try to choose a charity to highlight and encourage local Dallas families to teach their children the importance of giving back at a young age. For this event, we’ve decided to partner with Community Partners of Dallas, an organization that is dedicated to ensuring safety and restoring dignity and hope to abused and neglected children by providing resources and support to the caseworkers of Dallas County Child Protective Services. 

This Christmas, they will be granting wishes for 5,500 of Dallas Count’s abused and neglected children. For some, this may be the first Christmas gift they’ve ever received.

To help them in their efforts, our Breakfast with Santa event will be a Toy Drop station for their Toy Drive. A collection box will be placed near the Community Partners of Dallas table space at the event, and you’re encouraged to bring new, unused toys!

For each item you bring to donate, you’ll receive a raffle ticket to enter our fabulous giveaways from Micro Kickboard, Sweet as Sugar, Tempting You Sweetly Bakery, theCoderSchool, topGolf, Tot on the Pot, Twiga Clothing, Kwik Stix, Homewood Suites – Downtown Dallas, and Teacher Peach. The more donations you bring, the higher chance you have of winning!

NEW MOST-NEEDED TOYS LIST : Paw Patrol Toys – Princess Dress-Up Clothes – ALL Baby Toys – Dallas Cowboys & Texas Rangers Items – Toddler Blocks – Spiderman Toys – Batman Toys – Nail Polish Kits – Baby Dolls – Arts & Crafts Kits – Shopkins Toys – AND MORE!
